Do you remember your first time in the Les 2 Alpes?
Yes, it was a few years ago now but I remember it like yesterday. You might say it was my second step towards becoming a ski instructor. What struck me then and still now is the kindness of the locals.
What is your favourite area within the 2 Alpes ski resort? Why?
Hum, that is a difficult question as I love it all. I would have to say the area I love most has fresh tracks, face shots and smiles from everyone. I’d be letting on all my secrets if I told you where this is!
Any pistes that you prefer? And off-piste areas?
This as above and also very much depending on the conditions/weather of the day! I also love a top to bottom perfect corduroy piste - only found first thing in the morning but a great warm up before lessons!
What would a perfect day out in the mountains be for you?
My perfect day was the day I met my husband skiing the Aguille Rouge followed by lunch in Venosc! It was only when I went to pay for my lunch and it was paid that I started to put 2 and 2 together, there were a lot of questions from the others in the group as to my “status, boyfriend or not!” and my lunch was mysteriously paid... the rest is history shall we say!
Any restaurant in the valley that you can recommend for a special occasion?
My favourite restaurant for a special occasion would have been the Raisin d’Ours. The chef/owner has now moved on and is running the Hotel Chamois this year so I’m looking forward to going and trying it out!
A cheese fondue - everyone's favourite: Le Cellier!
Where will we find the best coffee or hot chocolate?
The best place for coffee, hot chocolate and atmosphere is Laurie's Sweet Coffee. The drinks are great and the welcome is even better!
And a great bar for a drink?
My local would always be the Polar Bear.
Where would you go to get your equipment serviced?
Jaques Sport has the best ski servicing machine in town.
What's your favourite thing to do in resort when not skiing?
When I can’t ski, I love to enjoy a beer by the open fire in the Polar Bear or a hot chocolate with marshmallows in Laurie's Sweet Coffee Shop.
If someone was coming here for the first time, what would you suggest they absolutely must do or see in resort?
Well, firstly they must book a lesson with TipTop Ski Coaching, of course! And then, I’ll let them into all the secrets on and off the mountain!
